See here, Chere-oes: ;-)
I've tried all manner of command option permutations with 'chere'
and can't get it to work -- as it has in the past.
Here's my latest attempt:
$ chere -i -a -n -e "Bitte Bash Bei" -t mintty -o \
Shell defaulting to bash defined for lr
First, it doesn't work, so that when I right-click on a directory
and select the 'chere' option, I get the following text box
This file does not have a program associated with it for
performing thia action. Create an association in the Set
Associations control panel.
Second, no matter what menu expression (argument to '-e'), I give
it, it always ends up being:
Fortumately, 'chere -u' seems to work.
$ cygcheck -c chere
Cygwin Package Information
Package Version Status
chere 1.1-1 OK
2. My Windows System PATH includes '/bin' in Windows format.
3. I always run the 'chere' command in an "as Administrator" window.
4. The above install command is only one of tens of option
permutations I've tried, all chere-less-Lee.
Clearly, I have nothing to cheere about! ;-)
I've always found 'chere -i' works for me. I'd also recommend getting rid of
